USA fears terrorism across Europe this summer and has now issued travel advices for Americans travelling to the continent.
"As part of the State Department’s continuous efforts to provide Americans travelling abroad with information about relevant events, we are alerting U.S. citizens to the risk of potential terrorist attacks throughout Europe, targeting major events, tourist sites, restaurants, commercial centers and transportation. The large number of tourists visiting Europe in the summer months will present greater targets for terrorists planning attacks in public locations, especially at large events. This Travel Alert expires August 31, 2016," reads the warning.
Especially the European Soccer Championship in France, from June 10 – July 10, is mentioned as highly dangerous, which also head of the European Union police agency Europol, Rob Wainwright, has warned about.
The Tour de France cycling race which will be held from July 2- 24, is another potential target, warns the American State Department.
In addition the Catholic Church’s World Youth Day event in Krakow, Poland, between July 26 and July 31, which is expected to draw up to 2.5 million visitors, is also regarded as a highly potential target for terrorists.
